The subject will address the modern clinical management of patients with cancer. The management of the whole patient journey from screening and diagnosis, through treatment, psycho-oncology assessment and support, to follow up, survivorship, and palliative care, will be covered. Principles of treatment and treatment modalities will be considered across the full spectrum of cancers, with case studies applied to specific tumour types used to explore generic principles of cancer care.
The Cancer Care subject aims to examine the benefits and limitations of various treatment modalities available for patients with cancer. Case studies will be used to integrate this information to understand and evaluate the modern era of integrated cancer care and the role of multi-disciplinary team-based patient management. The subject aims to provide breadth of knowledge and perspective with regards to cancer treatment, outside of each individual’s clinical specialty, and beyond the clinical manifestation of the disease.
